    You can see ATTITUDE all over their faces. I dealt with this EVERY day for 8 years teaching MIDDLE school. The focus is now on REDUCING the number of suspensions at any cost. Garbage!!!

    This is so unnecessary. These "kids" should not be allowed back in school - ever. Resisting a police officer and assaulting a school employee should not and should never be allowed. Hopefully, they are gone.
